Bob & I arrived early and checked into the Westin Hotel on Palm Beach. We got the rental car picked up and had dinner at Tony Romas. Here is a picture of the view from the hotel room.
Here you can see the new section of the Natural Bridge in Aruba. The original bridge was formed by the rough waves hitting the rocks. It formed a natural bridge but in the fall of 2006, it collapsed leaving a smaller version of the Natural Bridge. Daniel and Tara stand by the smaller bridge.
The above photos are caves that are located in Aruba. The caves there are named: Guadirikiri Cave, Fontein Cave, and Huliba Cave (also known as Tunnel of Love) These caves are located on the western coast. You also will find donkeys and goats running wild in this area.
To the left you will find a picture of an anchor (look close for Daniel and Tara) and the wind surfers who are amazing to sit back and watch.
One of the popular sites to try to get to is Natural Pool. It is also the hardest place to get to. The roads in the picture below show the rugged terrain that you have to go down to get there. Don't try it in a car - if you don't have an ATV or Jeep, you aren't getting there. lol Even a jeep has some trouble. But once you are there, and you climb down, it is well worth the venture. Bring your snorkel gear also. If you look close in the second to the bottom picture - Daniel and Tara are sitting on the highest rocks. I was just praying a huge wave didn't knock them off.
This trip was Aiden's first trip. He was only 6 months old but big enough to enjoy alot of things. It was also great to let Daniel and Tara get away and take a break from being MOM and DAD and just enjoy themselves. Sharing one of our favorite places with someone we love makes it even better.
